Video Recommendation - Iron Man's Adventures

This is so cool. Now only if the live action movies were like this.

Music Recommendation - Jimmy Coup

While searching for the singer of the Ben10 live action movie Race Against Time theme,

I stumble onto Jimmy Coup's Don't Believe a Word song.

But not sure if they are the same singers though.

Haul of the Day

The Great Singapore Sale officially started on May 23, 2008. My damage for the second day of the sale.

Transformers Animated
The department stores are stocking up on these figures after the success of the movie franchise.

Activators are much welcomed series. It has good articulations and great sculpt for a great price.

Wave 1 Deluxe figures.

Wave 1 Voyagers, missing Megatron due to a glitch. :(

Deluxe DVD boxset, exclusive to Takashimaya for now.

Transformers Movie

With 20% discounts and a further 10% after the discounted price, I could not resist.
But I am putting off Jazz, Brawl and Barricade, for now.

Spider-Man Movie Trilogy

Sadly, out of desperation to get the Venom figure, I picked up the last one on the rack that is blind (bad paint chip) in one eye. :(
But the Trilogy series, though are all rehashes, gives other collectors who missed out previously on the other movie series, as well as other Spider-man series like classics.

Incredible Hulk movie

I know I said I will never be picking up this line, but this figure, the most articulated in the series, was decent enough not to resist.

Ben 10

Had been wanting to get this figure since the first time I saw it at Carrefour a few years back, before the cartoon became popular. Heatblast is the most articulated figure of the whole series.

Konami AM Driver

A failed series by Konami in Japan and overseas, that they had to mark down the price so much, and still not selling.
Actually this series is not bad, but not sure why people just do not buy in. The anime was horrible though.

Haul of the Day

Transformers Movie

Picked them up at Takashimaya at 20% discount.


Kinokuniya finally had a 20% discount for all stores, opened to the public.

Haul of Yesterday - 18 May 2008

Forgot to mention got this 1/6th water bottle "gift" from shaun.

Music Recommendation - Duffy

Just heard her songs on a TV advertisement. Quite a retro feel.


But I like this one better. Has the "My Girl" tune to it.
Warwick Avenue

Comics Borrowed Recently

Was talking to a colleague the other day, and he said Nausicaa was a great read. While browsing through, saw the middle comic by Matt Smith. He has a similar style to Mike Mignola.

Haul of the Day


Thanks to shaun for picking this up for me.

Marvel Legends ShowDown


Mid year clearance sale at SpawnAsia.


Too bad they did not make a human form. That would be great.
The paint on the figure and simple articulation was quite hard to resist.

Toy Review - Indiana Jones 4: Mutt Williams Action Man

Ladies Man with Action Man bike that came with McDonald's kids meal.

Toy Review - Indiana Jones 4: Mutt Williams More Pictures

Size comparison with Marvel Legends.

Roll out !

Strike a pose !

Toy Review - Indiana Jones 4: Mutt Williams



A paper box, a non-articulated green snake and a knife on the figure's hand.


The figure is in the 3 3/4" scale, same as the Hasbro Star Wars figures.


Since Hasbro uses the same design as their Star Wars figures, you basically get the same set of articulations, which is good enough.
  • Ball jointed neck
  • Ball joint shoulders
  • Ball joint elbow
  • Cut wrist
  • Cut waist
  • T hip
  • Ball joint knee
  • Ball joint ankle

Visit to Alex's House

See details here and here.

Thanks to shaun for organizing it and Alex and Daisy for letting us intrude into their privacy for a day. Your hospitality was priceless. Daisy prepared food for us, and both were busy showing us around and tending to our questions, and opening up pieces to let us have a look. Alex even dressed up for our visit. :)

Haul of the Day

Mattel DC Universe Classics

When everyone thought that Mattel distributor would never again bring in DC SuperHeroes line with some many figures still burning the shelves at department stores (partly due to their greed by rising the price from S$19.90 to S$34.90, and now having to succumb to pressure to reduce back to S$19.90), they managed to sneak in limited cases of DC Universe Classics Series 1. Hopefully they will continue to bring in the rest of the series. It's a bit worrying seeing how many Red Tornadoes whisking about the shelve space, and not taking off though.
Thanks to shaun again for picking these figures up for me.

NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Whoohoo ! Finally picked up these figures from the local distributor. Thanks Alex !

Marvel Legends Iron Men

Picked these loose figures (House of M and Young Avengers, no accessories) from the local flea market for S$10 a piece, capitalizing on the current Ironman movie release.

Hasbro Spider-Man 3 Sandman

Picked this up at the same flea market stall, seeing the price of this figure, and since it is still officially unreleased. This figure is similar to the movie BAF Sandman, but without the BAF part and different set of attack hands.

Hasbro Indiana Jones 4

Shia Labeouf making it big time with a major role in Indy4, after Transformers.
Got this figure to go with the Transformer figures.

World's Smallest Transformers

One down, and one more to go to complete the WST Dinobots.
